Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Please redirect me if this has been asked before, but I couldn't find anything.

Anyways, my husky is 13 months old, for the past month he's been on TOTW adult food, and before that he was on TOTW puppy from about 2 months old.

My girlfriend bought the food this time and accidentally got puppy food. It's a 45 lb bag so it will last about a month, is this ok to feed him or should I just accept the loss and go buy a bag of adult food?

The bag is already opened also.

Thanks!

I don't think it will hurt him all that much. I had my shepherd mix on puppy food for 3 months for weight gain and she was 12.

I was told by the people at petco you could keep them on puppy food up to two years old. They still may have some growing and developing to do still in there second year.

I don't think one bag of puppy food will hurt him at all..however, I know Petsmart/Petco and other stores that sell dog food here let you return the food for any reason even if it is open. You could always check into that and exchange for adult if you really don't want to feed it.

Thanks for suggestions, I just decided to buy a bag of adult food and give him 3/4 adult and 1/4 puppy for now and it seems to be working fine.
